Broncos releasing RB CJ Anderson after five seasons

Broncos releasing RB CJ Anderson after five seasons

Former Cal running back C.J. Anderson is looking for a new team.

Anderson is coming off the best season statistically in his career.

Anderson, 27, spent his first five years in the league with the Broncos after going undrafted in 2013.

He ran for 3,051 yards and 20 touchdowns in his 58-game career with the Broncos and was a Pro Bowl selection in 2014.

This comes days before the National Football League draft on April 26.

China, Japan ministers pave way for rare summits
The talks came ahead of a summit between the two Koreas this month and a meeting between North Korean leader Kim Jon Un and U.S. The Japan-China Excessive-Stage Financial Dialogue was being held Monday in Tokyo for the primary time since August 2010.

With Anderson gone, only Devontae Booker and De'Angelo Henderson remain on the Denver roster as recognized running backs.

The Broncos apparently had an agreement all set to trade Anderson to the Miami Dolphins for offensive tackle Ja'Wuan James, but the Dolphins made a decision to pull out of the deal.

The Broncos were listening to trade offers for the running back, who rushed for more than 1,000 yards last season, but were apparently unable to find any takers. He also added in 28 receptions for 224 receiving yards and four total touchdowns.

By releasing Anderson, the Broncos save $4.5 million in cap space this offseason.
